SQL Server Reporting Services Aims to Bring Simplicity to Building, Managing, Distributing Reports

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Microsoft Press Pass]

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 10, 2003 -- While reporting is a critical part of a company, it has historically not been an easy task. Reporting mechanisms are rarely a part of the database package, which means organizations must purchase them from a third party. These frequently did not integrate with applications common throughout the rest of the organization, making development and sharing of reports challenging and laborious.

To help companies more easily build and distribute reports, Microsoft has created SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services, which is beginning Beta 2 testing today. SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services makes flexible, customized reports available to a broad base of information workers, as well as to executives and analysts. Information workers can subscribe to reports and receive them - via a Web browser, through any Microsoft Office System application, or embedded within line-of-business applications - enabling better, faster, more relevant decisions at a lower cost than competing solutions.
